Right now is a great time to test your home.  Radon is an odorless, invisible gas that is released from the soil and can enter homes through cracks in the building’s foundation – and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer.  To protect yourself and your loved ones from this gas, test your home with a free radon test kit.  The only way to know if it is in your home is to test.

For more information on radon, check out the Minnesota Department of Health’s brochure by following this link:

If you would like to pick up a free radon test kit, please stop by the Red Lake DNR and see me or contact me at (218) 679-1618.
